't million dollars will be new renne knew line item for behind the meter energy production and the model of it sits right now assumes shared savings and cost and is so in all fairness to the consultant we asked them to put together-holistic revenue model not to do rate structures or rate differentiation and so right now, it's a blended model i'll not go overall of the details in the next two badges but that is the thick of it and you will see that the inches are pretty significant and most of the project in particular in the middle of the page are about 5400 energy efficient projects in the city over the next five years. some available of hetchy and if all of these major mage key assumptions come to pass and if the city is able to borrow the near million dollars that,that is the key assumptions that it would take in order for a claim to be able to say to meter or b or to have a rate parody with the p g and e and what is helpful about this exercise is it's helped us put flesh to an idea as far as what would have to align what things would have to come together in order for these rate par

. the state seemed to spend more energy on accelerating their projects at the expense of local projects and so we recommended and oppose at this point in time, until we can see some improvement in what they plan to put in the legislation. and lastly, on the assembly side, ab842 is a measure that we have seen before, and it is on page 7 of the matrix and it would eliminate all further bond funding for the high speed rail program which will have the effect of initially shutting down the initial construction segment as well as the funding for blended service and connectivity projects that we are dependent upon in the bay area and in san francisco. so we recommended opposed to that measure. the previous measures all failed and we think that this one is destined for the same failure but we will have to see and work on it. >> two measures on the senate side that we are recommended support, first is sb 219. and it deals with extending the double fine zones on state routes, 1 and 101 in san francisco, indefinitely. and there has been a long history of first initiating the double fine zones and then co

be a wash but we may see big changes with energy or climate change or carbon footprint and those kinds of things approximate so it's pretty exiting and shortly we will be able to come and present the results of the beta test that is we have done so you can get an idea of what it would look like and how we will look at things in the future. >> part of my question goes to the enact that we don't typically get involved in a lot of questions about which technology will be used and in the example here it looked as though it was a pretty good choice of what will be taken and it's one area better than all of the other why would you urge some thought that when you have -- that are not that clear and there are clear trade-off that is somebody has has to make between the -- a project and it's social benefits if those differences are not clear where they are significant, they should come to the commission for discussion because i'm not sure what the break is on that at what dollar level or level of significance how you describe that but you probably know it when you see it my guess so, i think
